Carpets and Care Packages

The following links provide ordering information with colors and prices for each residence hall.

Carpets

Most student rooms at USC are not carpeted. RHA has made arrangements with Residence Hall Carpets for you to pre-order a carpet and have it waiting for you in your room when you arrive on-campus; there is no need to lug all that extra weight from home! Carpets are first-quality, plush, meet all residential fire and safety requirements and are bound on all four sides. Plus, we’re able to offer you a student discount and proceeds from the program are used for programming in the residence halls. Please visit our website www.ocm.com/usc/carpets or call 800-892-8729 for more information about recommended sizes and pricing and to place your order.

Care Packages

RHA sponsors a care package program to help parents and family members connect with their student(s) during critical times of the year. Mailings are sent home during the year and proceeds from this program are used for student leadership opportunities and programming. You can also visit www.ocm.com/usc/carepackages to place orders for birthdays, holidays or "just because." Please contact customer service if you have any questions.

Diploma Display

A diploma signifies more than a degree; it symbolizes all the hard work, fun and achievement of a graduate's college years. Your once in lifetime achievement deserves to be cherished forever, yet research indicates that the longer a diploma goes unframed, the more likely it is to stay that way. Don't let this happen to your hard-earned diploma.

Diploma Display offers several exclusively designed and custom fitted frames for USC diplomas. With hand crafted, cherry stained frames and conservation quality matting, you know your purchase is one with a classic look that will stand the test of time. Diplomas are easily inserted into the frame without tools for a perfect fit to allow you to display it immediately without having to be sent out for expensive and time-consuming framing. Visit Diploma Display at www.diplomadisplay.com/usc to view the full line of frames or call 800-422-4100.

Student Backup

Losing files on your computer can be devastating, especially when you’re in school and need to meet deadlines. Over 62% of students don’t backup their computer, putting them at increasingly large odds of losing their work. With Student Backup, your files will automatically be backed up on a daily basis, eliminating the potential for an extremely stressful situation. Student Backup is compatible with both Mac and PC, and with Military Grade Encryption (the same protection used by Fortune 500 companies), you don’t need to worry about security either.

Don't be part of the 40% of students who will lose their computer data this year. Visit our website at www.campusbackup.org/usc or call 800-287-8554 to learn more or to order. Here's a tip from other parents – order a copy for yourself, too! The software will offer you the same assurance it provides for your student!
